You know the type: "You'll never be able to earn a living building pc's" "I can't imagine you ever doing anything other than lorry driving".
On the one hand I get angry with them and they make me even more determined to acheive, but then, at the first setback, My self-doubt, coupled with all their "I told you so's" make me lose faith.
I need to find a way to block out all the doubters but I've yet to find it.
Everybody had their share of setbacks and failures. It is only those who can see those failures as feedback, change and try again will succeed.
Do not start to believe them as you will make it a reality. See what you are doing wrong, change it and have a go at it again.
I am currently facing the same challenges as you, nobody believe that I can make a living out of blogging and I am still moving forward going to prove them wrong. I had my set backs but I chose to dwell in the optimism and make the effort to keep tweaking my strategies.
I hope you can prove them wrong and keep on going.
